    I'll take a Magic 3.1 over Swap Magic discs any day . swapping discs all the time is more than I want to put up with. If you're having problem with CD media try the media first. Verbatims burned at 1x appear to me to get the best results. Also, are you sure you have a Magic 3.1? The problems you've described are quite common with Magic 3.0's.

    I suggest you check the install of the chip and see what version it actually is. Should have a V1-V7 sticker on it.

    ok guys ty BUT I HAVE 2 things, i bought a magic 3.1 from gamegizmo.com but i had a store install it so do you think they keep my 3.1 and put in a 3.0 should i open of ps2 and check is it really becaues of that. or is it just the laser and they messed up or what is it. and also i had the orginal SUPERCARS and it would shut off after every race it wasent copyed same with the sims that was organal one and it just wouldent boot up but the copied sims did boot up but at every loding screen or movie it would go then stop for like a second then so for like half a second then go so i dont even play it

    and about the swap disces my feind says for 100 dolars less (50 for chip 100 for instaling) he sayed swaping dosent matter but the thing is im not going to copie his games if there are these so called patched you need to copy games to be able to play them with a swap disc
    BUT on the othere had if you can burn them the same way you burn games for magic 3.1 then i will do it
    SO are there patches for games like EA game patches and every thing if so are they for every game or just some please help me
